The Loser's Bracket - Round 115
Featuring special guest Mike "Adebisi" van Driel!

Spring Arena II has come to an end and we are joined this week by one of the men who helped to make the event happen! Mike "Adebisi" van Driel is well known for his work with observing Starcraft II matches and has now worked at multiple eSports events around the country. During our interview with Mike we discuss multiple topics including how MLG could further increase production value, how to approach observing a game of Starcraft II, and players using controversial language in the eSports world. Stay tuned after the interview for call in questions from The Loser's Bracket listeners!

Topics and highlights this week include:
  • MLG Arena observer Mike "Adebisi" van Driel joins the crew to discuss the recent event! Who is Adebisi and how was his experience at the second Spring Arena? (Time: 00:09:00)
  • Paradise talks with Adebisi about some of the newer features added to the MLG Arena production. How did MLG pull off picture-in-picture, instant replays, and first person views? (Time: 00:14:15)
  • How does Adebisi train for observing games? Additionally, who are the other casters that are working in observing? (Time: 00:18:45)
  • What would Adebisi like to see added to MLG to increase production value even further? Could features similar to the League of Legends spectator mode improve casting capability in Starcraft II? (Time: 00:24:45)
  • Adebisi supports quite a few different podcast shows! How does Mike make time to support so many facets of eSports while playing games, practicing, and finishing his undergraduate degree? (Time: 00:34:30)
  • Mike is involved in a part of eSports that generally goes unnoticed. For example, we rarely notice the cameraman during a sports game. What motivates Adebisi in this field? (Time: 00:39:00)
  • Does Adebisi have a system for breaking down a map before observing a game? What does he look for during a game and how does he choose what to focus on? (Time: 00:44:00)
  • KeyHunt mentions that Adebisi is fairly vocal with his opinions on social media networks. Curt pulls out a random controversy, Starcraft II player Destiny, and asks Mike his opinion on the matter. Why does LordJerith say that the eSports community needs to "self-police?" (Time: 00:50:45)
  • The crew opens the show to callers! Our first caller asks a question about game sequels. When a new game comes out does it refresh the scene for a title? Do game sequels splinter the gaming community? (Time: 01:12:00)
  • With MLG Anaheim right around the corner, a three-way player swap has taken place between major League of Legends teams. How will these changes impact the teams involved? (Time: 01:22:15)
